Pride Month

June 20, 2024

Pride Month is a time of celebration, reflection, and solidarity for the LGBTQ+community in Canada and around the world. In Canada, we are fortunate to have a strong and vibrant LGBTQ+ community that is able to openly celebrate their identities and history during the month of June.

It is important to recognize that pride is not just about celebrating the progress that has been made in advancing LGBTQ+ rights, but also about acknowledging the ongoing challenges and struggles faced by the community, particularly those who are marginalized or face intersecting forms of discrimination and oppression.

Intersectionality is a crucial aspect of the pride movement, as it recognizes that individuals can face discrimination based on multiple aspects of their identities, such as race, gender, disability, or socioeconomic status. By centering intersectionality in our understanding of pride, we can work towards a more inclusive and equitable society for all.

While we celebrate Pride Month in Canada with parades, events, and rainbow flags flying high, it is important to remember that in many parts of the world, LGBTQ+individuals still face discrimination, violence, and persecution simply for being who they are. We are fortunate to live in a country that made significant progress on protecting the LGBTQ+ rights. However, we must continue to support and advocate to continue our work towards LGBTQ+ rights and protection within Canada and elsewhere for those who do not have the same freedom.

As we commemorate Pride Month in Canada, let us remember the importance of intersectionality and strive to create a more inclusive and accepting world for allLGBTQ+ individuals, both here and abroad.
